Intermec embeds IBM RFID software
Intermec says it has embedded IBM's WebSphere Device Infrastructure (WRDI) into the Intermec IF5 RFID reader to create an intelligent RFID reader that automates routing and managing incoming data from RFID tags, even from remote locations.
The new WRDI capabilities, available immediately, are claimed to give IF5 readers edge-server capabilities, including ability to perform on-board decision-making, reducing network traffic by filtering incoming data from external RFID tags and sending only the most pertinent information upstream to a company's application server. WRDI reportedly also provides the readers with a platform to integrate and reconcile RFID information with data used in other parts of the business.
WRDI was developed for RFID device manufacturers needing an embedded, open-standards-based software platform to provide automatic RFID data-collection and reporting from remote locations where on-site IT services are not available.
